  • Overview
    Introduction

    The Plantation is a smart pub with luxury boutique hotel rooms just a short drive from Bournemouth, Dorset.

    Located near the village and blue flag beach of Canford Cliffs, The Plantation is within the Poole conservation area and within walking distance of some of the oldest beach huts in Europe.

    Activities
    Some of the most beautiful beaches in England can be found in Dorset and aren't far from The Plantation. The blue flag beach of Canford Cliffs is less than five minutes' walk away and Branksome Chine just 15 minutes.

    A little further afield is Sandbanks, another blue flag beach with soft sand and shallow blue waters, perfect for children to splash about in. Bournemouth is just a short drive away and is where you'll find the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum featuring a collection of Pre-Raphaelite art and a world-famous Japanese collection.

    Garden lovers should take a stroll through Compton Acres just a few minutes' walk away. Here you'll find rock and water gardens, a wooded valley and one of the finest Japanese gardens in the UK.
    Dining

    The Plantation is privileged to have James White as Head Chef. Previously working at another Chic Retreat, Hotel Terravina, under Gavin Barnes, he perfected his butchering skills and sampled some of the New Forest's best game.

    James is originally from the Bournemouth area and has returned to his roots bringing with him his wealth of experience creating signature dishes and modern versions of pub classics using seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients.

    In the garden, there are large cabanas and plenty of space for children and well-behaved dogs to run around in. During the warmer months, the outdoor grill and bar come into action serving freshly cooked lobster, burgers and tender meats. Chill-out in your own candlelit cabana to the mellow sound of live jazz.

    The Plantation welcomes non-residents for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
